Imho, potential bicyclist injury/death was "created" when road sharing between bicycles and much larger vehicles was established on NYC streets. Bicycles should be removed from city streets and only be safely used for pleasure in specially designated places; this measure would avoid all (or most) of bicycle collision related tragedies, grief, and legal/financial consequences
So how do you expect me to get home every day when there's one bus running in the middle of the night and if I miss it it's either $25 for an uber or over an hour commute instead of my 18 min bike ride? I've been road cycling for six years in the city with only one incident where someone turned left sharply with no indicator, slammed on his brake while going downhill and I ended up plowing into the drivers side door and completely flipping over the hood and going to the ER right after. The majority of people driving in NYC don't pay attention for sht and especially have no interest in looking out for cyclists. I'm on both ends, cycling and driving in the city and when it comes down to safety I respect it because I don't want to injure/kill someone and have the same happen to myself. Good for those who try to ride safe and for those that blow through light blatantly and don't pay attention... well what goes around comes around unfortunately. I'm not 100% a saint when I cycle but I do it as safe as possible when it warrants.

Wear bright lights, don't text and ride, don't ride up wrong way streets (or if you do it - don't get outraged at us honking to save your live :) ) and we have a deal (and you already are not a regular NYC bike rider, but a very nice one :) )

V1Jake, I do not know how to solve your commuting issues but I want you (and all others) to get home (or other destination) safe and sound, period.

By riding bike on shared NYC roads you take chances, you know and accept it, and your experience proves how inherently risky it could be. Unfortunately, many bicyclists were less lucky than you and I want to avoid these situations. Removing bicycles from street traffic is the safest way to prevent future mishaps for everyone's benefit, imho.

I do all of the above. 800 lumen flashlights, flashing lights on both ends and an extremely reflective vest. Even got a bell so they wouldn't ticket me :)
